What are some of your favorite healthy snacks? I tend to eat a lot of junk food. I guess I'm the only one to do this. Remember when you were young and somebody encouraged you to do all the right things and when you left home you made all your own decisions. It's odd how hard it is to make yourself do the right thing. Good habits don't come easy, I guess. 60 degrees and nice here. I'm resting up from working my donkey. She's 10 years old and eating is all she's done. Broke loose twice, had to walk back to barn to get her. I guess it helps to be smarter then them. The first time I worked her I turned my horse out. Big mistake. Caught him up. Pulled a few logs. Wore us both out. The lady who was lonesome, I feel if she stays in touch with you'all it'll help her.

Popcorn with brewers yeast instead of salt and butter.

My wife turned me on to the brewers yeast.

If you use a hot air popper to pop the corn you can eat as much of that stuff as you want and keep the wife and the doctor happy.

every time you go to the store get 1 bag carrots, cellery, a bunch of broccoli, cauliflower, cucumber, raddishes and anything else you like, AND a pkg of gallon size zip lock bags.

That very day, cut up ALL vegetables, and put in separate bags, and line them up all neat and handy on the bottom shelf of the fridge. Keep a bottle of your favorite dressing or dip handy and you will be suprised and how much veggies you and your family eat when they are handy. Maybe you already do this though...

Invest in a good dehydrator and learn how to use it for fruit and meats. Then bag up your own snack food in pint or quart zip lock bags.

You betcha, I like apple chips about the best. Haven't had great luck with bannana yet, but mine are decent. Peaches also come out good, I've used fresh and canned. Light syrup if you go canned and rinse 'em while they're still in the cans. This also works good with pears and fabulous with canned pineapple. Fresh pineapple is good too but I don't particularly like cutting it.
For apples I use one of those that takes the core and cuts it into sections all at once. Then I just slice the sections thin. Sometimes put cinamon on before I dehydrate.

I've also used the dehydrator to make fruit rollups out of apple sauce. I don't do those often though because my wife will eat them all before I get any!
